Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The ability to control the dispersion of carbon nanotubes in polymers is key to most applications of nanotube-polymer composites. This feature article describes recent advances in methods used to disperse carbon nanotubes and considers how these methods affect dispersion on different length scales. It is becoming increasing clear that perfect dispersion is not desired for many applications, in particular for electrical conductivity, and controlling the dispersion is key for proper function of the composite in its intended application.
